Is it possible to lose weight from a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck is definitely not a method for weight loss. You will lose weight from a tummy tuck as tissue is being removed, particularly if combined with liposuction but if you need to lose or are planning to lose weight, then it is much better that lose the weight before surgery. That way surgery is much safer; there are likely to be much less complications and the surgeon will be able to achieve a much better cosmetic outcome for you.

The tummy is often seen as a problem area, as it can be difficult to tone up, particularly as you age. Women, in particular, can find this difficult as childbirth causes the abdominal muscles to stretch and separate. An abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure aimed at removing excess skin, small amounts of resistant fatty tissue and tightening up the abdominal muscles. The procedure is suitable for men and women who are at or near their ideal body weight.
